Out of the Box” will be in its 3rd year of development and we are planning for the 2024/25 school year.  “Out of the Box” was inspired by Karin’s passion for helping children who find it difficult to learn in the regular school classroom: a place where students (grades 4-9) belong and feel able to learn at their best.  Karin has first-hand experience that stems from the challenges her children had trying to function in the noisy and overstimulating environment of the public school classroom.

This program is for parents looking for an alternative setting for their child that involves a sensory-sensitive environment and quiet learning space with a high ratio of teachers and tutors per student population.  The children have their homeschool academic curriculum delivered in the morning with lots of support and positive attitudes while the afternoons are provided with other activities to fulfill the electives needed for each grade.  Electives may include swimming, skating, WIP Climbing Gym, Outdoor Exploration, Choir, Ukulele, Art, Knitting, and Sewing.  Each term differs in terms of the electives that are offered to fulfill the electives for the BC Curriculum.  

We are currently taking applications for the 2024/25 school year. Please click the link below to apply.  Interviews will be in April and May.  

This program is for children in grades 4-9 who have had a multi-disciplinary assessment by a psychologist, occupational therapist, speech and language pathologist, etc. 

Please make sure that your child is ready for the interactions involved in a group setting.
